It looks like there's also a blue-gray colored line when using mouse gestures.

Brilliant idea. Now we don't have to guide users to app data.
Arranged the location of the buttons in up right corner under Full Screen & Full Desktop mode
I keep my address bar to the right of the menu bar. When entering full screen mode those buttons appear to the left of the address bar as opposed to the right corner as described. When I return to normal mode there's then a blank space where the buttons were. Also, AB still doesn't remember its window size after entering & exiting full screen. It just defaults to filling as much screen as possible.

System buttons STILL can't be moved off the tab bar. Anderson, please make them movable. please please

Upper left corner. Marked with red.

Else I'm very happy with the improvements, even though the downloader needs improvement.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but:
When I click on Bookmarks/Groups/name there's a blank tab line under the tabs. When I delete a tab the blank line then disappears.

My guess is that it's a resolution issue. Does it happen if you only have 1 site in your group? Or 2, 3, etc.? I'm betting that whatever variable is used to determine when Avant should shrink tabs and create a new line isn't properly divisble at your resolution.

And, I can confirm Psykocyber's issue. I could only get that on the first time going to Full Desktop mode, but I did still get it.

I have 2 home pages so I start off with 2 tabs.
I tried it with 1 site in a group and the line did not appear.
I then tried it with 2 sites in a group and the line appears.
Something must have changed in this version because I started using AB in May 2005 and have installed just about every release since and I have never seen this before.
BTW I use font size/large - res. 1024x768 - dpi/large(120dpi)

things that are not fixed from my previous complains about build2:

if dnload popup window appears, giving you chance to choose location and name for file. so far it's ok. but if you CANCEL it then it still opens another popup for asking to save/open file as regular IE dnload will do. so if i cancel dnload it still asks me to choose again dnload or not. if i decide to cancel dnload then i mean it. now it behaves like annoying salesman trying to sell and sell again.

if dnload manager dnloads something, it reserves exactly the same size what the file is in hard drive. but if you cancel dnload and also delete it, the partially dnloaded file with full size of (kilo/mega/giga)bytes will still remain in disk and will be not deleted. you have to do it manually in explorer.

Just to let me opinion be known, I completely disagree with bassiliin. The normal download option should definitely come after I say cancel in Avant's download manager. Simply because there are several sites wherefrom Avant's download manager doesn't work.

I think a 3rd button to dload with IE's standard downloader would be better. Then have cancel do just that, cancel.

Yes I agree with Psykocyber, there are things that won't download through the DM. Plus I like to have the ability to still use the regular download window if I so choose.
